Introduction

A so-called mage of rather questionable character claims to have mastered an outlandish form of spellcasting that resembles neither black nor white magic during his voyage to the New World. Allegedly, anyone who purchases one of his soul crystals can learn to mimic the aetherial magicks of wild creatures. But can he be trusted, or is he merely a con artist looking to make a quick gil?

Blue Mage is a Limited Job.

General information

Harnessing the power of blue magic, players can learn to mimic the abilities of wild beasts with this new job. Like Ninja, Blue Mage was added outside an expansion with patch 4.5.

Guild

Quest givers hang out in the plaza outside Milvaneth Sacrarium in Ul'dah - Steps of Thal.

Equipment

Canes (Blue Mage)

Blue Mage Only Armor Sets

And other armor and accessories "of Casting." However, unlike other jobs, a blue mage's weapons do not have any main attributes that enhance their base stats. Instead blue mage damage is based solely on intelligence points. With the removal of Intelligence Materia in Shadowbringers, it is difficult to specialize Casting gear for Blue Mage.

Limited Jobs

Blue mage is the first of several planned Limited Jobs in FINAL FANTASY XIV. As such, there are several key points that distinguish it from other jobs.

Blue mage functions independently of other classes and jobs, starting at level 1 with a maximum level of 70.

When playing as a blue mage, it is possible to participate in duties with other players in preformed or undersized parties. However, the following duties will remain inaccessible:

Blue mages gain greater experience from battling enemies in the open world than other jobs do.

  • No bonuses are granted to experience gained from FATE or guildleve enemies.

Blue mage cannot be used to progress through the main scenario.

Retainers cannot be assigned the blue mage job.

Actions Mechanics

Active Actions

Blue mage active actions1.png

Before spells can be set to your hotbar, they must first be selected as active actions. You can have up to 24 active actions at any given time.

  • Active actions cannot be changed during combat or during certain duties.

Active Sets

Active actions can also be saved together as a set. Up to five active sets can be saved.

  • The presently selected active set will not affect the layout of your hotbar.

Learning Spells

See also: Blue Mage Spells Learning Guide

Rather than gaining new actions by increasing in level, blue mages learn them from enemies. In order to do so, you must first witness an enemy perform a special attack in battle. Once it is defeated, you have a chance of acquiring the ability. You do not have to be hit by that spell. After defeating the enemy, you have a chance of learning that spell. The chance is determined by the rank of the spell. ★ is the easiest to learn while ★★★★★ is the hardest.

  • You don't need to be hit by the spell, only see it to be casted.
  • If you're dead when is enemy is defeated, you will not learn the spell. This also applies to deaths due to Final Sting and Self Destruct.
  • If one person in a party leans the spell, everyone in the party will also learn it.
  • Out of a duty, job level has no influence on when an action can be learned. There is no minimum level to learn a spell unless it is inside a duty. If a duty is level-synced (even when undersized), there is a 100% chance of learning the spell. If unsynced, the spell learning rate is dependent on the number of stars (estimates put ★★★★★ spell learning rates at 5%), but is not 100%.
  • There are two exceptions to the rule that spells learned unsync do not have a 100% drop rate: these are Mind Blast (from the Tam-Tara Deepcroft) and Glower (from Aurum Vale). These two are required by job quests, and will thus always drop.

Blue Mage Log

The blue mage log allows you to form parties with other blue mages and participate in specific duties.

How to Unlock

Requires Blue Mage Level 60

Complete the blue mage quest Blue in the Face and learn the blue magic spell Frog Legs.

How to Participate

From the log, you may view a list of available duties, recruit party members, and commence duties. Please note that the completion of duties will only count towards blue mage log progress if the party meets the size requirements. For this reason, it is recommended that you avoid using the "Undersized Party" option.

Available Duties

Successfully completing duties listed in the blue mage log will mark them as complete, provided that you fulfill the requirements.

Various rewards will be granted upon completion of these duties. Greater rewards are earned the first time a duty is completed via the blue mage log.

Weekly Targets

Greater rewards are given for completing duties marked as weekly targets, which are marked with a silver star.

  • The additional rewards for a weekly target can only be earned once per week.
  • Weekly targets are reset every Tuesday at 12:00 a.m. (PST).

Prime Targets

In addition to the standard weekly target, marked with a silver star in the list of duties, there is also a prime target, marked with a gold star. While the prime target offers increased rewards, the difficulty is significantly higher. The duties selected as prime targets are not otherwise accessible via the blue mage log.

Job mechanics

Blue Mage has no Job Gauge nor any traditional combos. Stacking individual spell effects in creative ways is how Blue Mage deals its most effective damage.
